Application process

Before you apply
The general job description is complemented by role-specific job descriptions for all courses looking for TAs. As what is expected from a TA differ from course to course, it is important to read the role-specific job descriptions carefully.

It is also important to read the course description for the course you are interested in TA’ing for – maybe the course changed from when you took it. 

Finally, it is important to check the schedule of the course(s) you are interested in TA’ing for so that it doesn’t clash with any of your other obligations. It is also important to consider the course schedules if applying for 2 or more courses.

The Application

When you apply for a TA position, you are required to complete the online application on Please note that only applications submitted via the online application will be considered.

As part of the application, you will be asked to prioritise the course(s) you wish to apply for. You can prioritise up to 3 positions, you wish to apply for. You must also tell us how many of your priotised courses (in ECTS), you wish to be employed for. For example, you can prioritise 3 courses (total of 30 ECTS), but are only interested in being employed for 15 ECTS, either as a single 15 ECTS course or two 7.5 ECTS courses. 

This in turn also means that if offered your 3rd priority course, you are expected to accept this course.

You are also required to submit a motivated application (called cover letter) as well as a CV and a recent transcript of records. The motivated cover letter can cover more than one course. The CV can include any part-time jobs, volunteer positions, specific skills or courses you think is relevant for the role.
